Lithops, plants that look like stones

One of my many and varied interests is plants, and particularly succulent plants.  I've been growing them for over 25 years, and my dad and grandfather also grew cactuses and succulents for a few years as well.  So you'll see a few posts here about them occasionally.

Anyway, here's a picture of what's flowering on the balcony this morning, a living stone plant, Lithops lesliei.  What an amazing group of desert plants, they hide from herbivores by looking like the stones they grow in.
